One of the best in my hangar

By: on 15 January 2016
This is not a floater and will not get the smallest thermals. However,if there is a proper thermal it will climb alright. It handles strong winds very well and is a pleasure to fly. The lack of flaps can be overcome by using reflex, if your radio allows for it. I have installed spoilers which makes spot landing a breeze. A 400W motor and 2200mAh 45C battery gets her up in no time. I added all the ball bearings in the tail to achieve CG. If you after thermalling only you can save weight by using a smaller motor and battery. Great to do aerobatics, the wings bend but I don't think they would break. The Manual is excellent and if you follow it, building is easy. Get enough CA glue! Good things: Manual Quality Solid flying flying performance Quick and solid elevator mount Less good: Mounting the wings can be a little fiddly The fuselage rod should be modified at the rear end to allow for future servo cable replacements. Check out the RCgroups forum. Would I buy it again? Definitely yes! Tony
